I enjoyed today’s Stage 4 Group ride, which was supposed to be Muir and the Mountains. As it turns out it was Muir and Less Than Half the Mountain … not only did the stage not include the Radio Tower (which I’d been pacing myself for), but also it did not include the descent and return to Titan’s Grove … even more to my surprise, I got the “End of Stage” confetti flash with my time 2 seconds before I crossed the Epic KOM air bridge. Yes, I know it’s not a race, but I had prepared for something that I thought was going to be about 90min and include the Radio Tower wall, and just ended up kind of deflated by it all being over in less than an hour.
Going forward, is there a way to indicate on the sign up that the stage route is only loosely based on an existing loop, and where the stage finish is placed? Or if that was done, to make it more prominent to those registering on the companion app?
